Q & A

Q. after the initial first injesctions when id the next injection due I cannot find this on the paperwork
A.

The dose should be given once daily by deep intramuscular injection for up to three consecutive days. However, as a prescription only medicine, you should follow the directions of the prescribing veterinary surgeon.

Q. My pregnant sheep is about 5months old and she is down with footrot.can I administer penstrep and what dose should I administer?
A.

There are no contra-indications regarding the use of Pen & Strep in pregnant animals; however, as a prescription medication, only your vet can legally advise you as to the suitability of the product in an particular clinical condition, and it must only be used according to the prescribing vet's directions.

Q. Can I give my 3 week old piglet an injection of pen and strep
A.

The product isn't contra-indicated for use in pigs of this age, although side effects are more likely than in adults. However, as a prescription medicine, you should use it only as directed by the prescribing vet.

Q. i got pen and strep in my eye and its blood shot will it be ok
A.

Any reaction to an oil-based product, such as you describe, is potentially serious, so I would advise that you wash it out thoroughly, and then seek medical advice and treatment.

Q. in other sites, penstrep is indicated for use on dogs. can i find out at what kind of doses will affect dogs' kidneys and hearing. are u referring to prolonged useage ? or that this shold not be used at all, not even for a few injections for dogs. thx.
A.

This product is not licensed for use in dogs - in other words, the manufacturer has done no safety testing for it in dogs, and the VMD have not licensed it as safe or suitable in this species.
Overall, I would strongly advise you NOT to use it in dogs, unless specifically prescribed by your vet, as although the risk of deafness probably isn't that high, the risk of kidney damage is significant.

Q. why is not pen &strep not recommended for dog and cat
A.

Pen & Strep contains streptomycin as one of its active ingredients; in dogs and cats this is known to cause kidney damage and deafness, so it isn't usually used in these species.
Hope that helps,

Q. I JUST GAVE PENSTREP TO 4 OF MY CHICKENS AND I NOTICED THE 4 ARE ALL WEAK AND SLEEPING,PLEASE IS IT NORMAL AS AM SCARED DAT THEY MAY DIE AND THEY ARE FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO WALK PROPERLY, PLEASE WHAT SHOULD BE ADVISED?
A.

Pen and Strep is not licensed for use in birds, and I'm not aware of any safety studies that have been done - certainly I've never used it in chickens, and it does sound as if they're having a bad reaction to it. Remember, the normal dose for a mammal is 1ml per 25kg by injection (it must never be given by mouth or in food or water), so a normal chicken would need only a fraction of a millilitre. In addition, it would very rarely be used on a dog or a cat as it can cause serious kidney damage in some species - it may be that birds are very sensitive to its effects.
The best thing I can advise is for you to contact your vet as soon as possible, as these birds may require urgent veterinary attention if they're suffering from penicillin or (more likely) streptomycin toxicity.

I hope that helps, and I wish you the best of luck with them.
